debate watching and other political things

Thursday night, at Serendipity, I'm going to have a debate-watching party.  The debate starts at 9pm, running 'til 10:30.  Hanging out will commence at 8.  Let me know if you need more information than that to find the party.

Also, I'm now starting to plan a drive to Minnesota for the weekend before the election, and the entire following week.  I'll be seeing family and friends and hanging out with the ol' gang.  Probably going to karaoke that Thursday after election.  Anyone want to road trip to the midwest with me and do some canvassing the weekend before the election? 

# Each debate shall have a single moderator and last for 90 minutes.
# [...] the candidates shall be seated with the moderator at a table.
# The first presidential debate shall focus primarily on domestic policy [...]
# There shall be no opening statements; there shall be two-minute closing statements.
# The order of questioning and closing statements shall be determined by coin toss.
# The moderator's job [...] will be to introduce and change topics, to ensure that the participants have equal time, and to encourage some direct exchange among the candidates. The moderators will select all topics and questions.
# The moderators will have discretion to ask follow-up questions in all debates.
# Each debate shall take place before a live audience.

Thanks. I didn't even know there was a debate on Thursday. (I know. Bad me.) Not sure if I'll make it, but at least I'm not a total clueless, out-of-touch, ignorant doofus now. :)

I thought the first debate was on foreign policy? Also, my understanding was that the rules forbade direct exchange between the candidates....
